AC Milan are on the verge of signing Lucas Ramalho Ordonho from Brazilian side Club Nautico.

The 17-year-old was born in Dallas, Texas and had previously featured for the youth side of Brazilian first division side Sport Recife.

Keen to develop on their improving youth side AC Milan are confident of adding the Brazilian to their Primavera side this summer according to calciomercato.it.

The Rossoneri are understood to have fought off interest from both Portuguese and American sides to sign the young forward.

A contract will be signed after the conclusion of the 2018 World Cup in July, which will tie the player down until 2021.

The Brazilian joins compatriot Nathan Soares who signed earlier this year having previously played for Cruzeiro.
